The Assassin’s Creed series is a pretty dang chunky one. With 12 mainline games, and the latest in particular being incredibly long (almost 60 hours to finish the main story alone), taking them on in general is no mean feat.
For some people though, playing through the games normally just isn’t enough, apparently. As reported by Kotaku, one streamer has recently finished a nine month quest to complete all 12 titles without taking any damage at all. Because why not, I guess?
While you're here, be sure to take a look at the full evolution of the Assassin's Creed series below.
Hayete Bahadori first began this grand mission back in October last year, with the original Assassin’s Creed. Since then, he’s worked his way through the lot, playing everything on the highest difficulty possible, restarting the whole run if his health bar fell below 100% (except in instances of any scripted, forced damage), or if he failed any objectives.
As you’d imagine, to pull all this off, a massive amount of planning and practice was required, and the streamer was determined not to use any strategies which were overly reliant on luck. Reportedly, Bahadori reckons that during the whole process, he probably failed around 1000 times, and racked up an obscene amount of playtime doing so. Apparently, most of the games took about 100 hours to complete, but Valhalla alone took around 800 hours worth of attempts.
One particular section near the end of Brotherhood, when Ezio uses the Apple of Eden, also proved to be very troublesome, as you’re thrown into a situation with randomly placed enemies, all ready to shoot at you with crossbows. This was the cause of a number of failed runs, and sadly, all down to luck rather than skill. Of course, the streamer did eventually manage, and his almost unfathomable dedication to see it through just makes the achievement all the more impressive.
If you’re interested, Bahadori’s successful runs have all been uploaded to his YouTube channel, so you can watch the seemingly effortless attempts in all their glory. I, uh, don’t think I’ll be attempting this challenge myself any time soon.
